  1. Forget about life expectancy, how long before my figures start to fall apart/disintegrate??? Get back to us on that, Lizzy
  2. Good option for anyone who missed out on the ML BAF. I do like the sandy base but i'll be sticking with the hasbro version for now.
  3. Yeah, feels like we are at that point where the figure is just showing up in pockets of the country and hasn't reached everywhere yet. But i do think a lot of collectors buying 3 will make it more difficult to track down than some of the other exclusives. Most of the time i've ended up getting WG exclusives off the website, then sometimes i'll see them afterwards in my local stores. Just gotta pay attention to social media 'cuz the online ordering is short and as with other retailer's sites they often end up taking more orders than they are prepared to fill.
  4. Yeah i've only seen a few complaints about this set, mainly A) lack of accessories - although honestly doesn't feel like most of these characters would need them anyhow> of course you can always use more alternate heads but otherwise really just an animal for snowbird to change into and a pair of grasping hands for Aurora/Northstar would do it B) cost - people either thinking $110 is too much (??) or who just can't drop that amount at once and wish the figures were staggered out more (??). Both of these gripes seem kinda out there to me, especially since there is a t least a decent chance the set gets marked down at some point. C) minor nitpicks about one or more figures appearance - Aurora not pretty enough, Vindicators weird maple leaf, etc. But you get those types of complains about every marvel legend that hasbro puts out. I don't plan on picking up the set myself but think it is great for AF fans and hope they will tackle more small teams in this manner in the future.
  5. I'm with you, while i like ScarJo and her performance as BW it feels like we've seen a bunch of other movies with ass-kicking female spies and i'm just not interested in a story set in between civil war and infinity war. I wish this movie had come out shortly after the 1st avengers movie and that it was set in the present, rather than the past. I'll still go see it but my expectations are low. Doesn't help that i'm not pumped about Eternals either. Wish the next film was either Doc Strange 2, Gotg 3 or Black Panther 2... but whatta you gonna do?? hopefully we get some cool action figures out of it, anyhow.
  6. I feel like that Polaris figure is underrated because she was such a peg-warmer. At the time i was pretty happy to have a figure of her that looked as good as it did. Although the upcoming version looks good too. Jubilee seems to be the 2nd most popular figure in the caliban wave after Beast (a little tough to gauge since Gambit was double-packed).
  7. My understanding is that Dave's widow gets royalty checks related to Nightcrawler, so hopefully the recent figure's sales will do her some good. Agree that Cockrum designed some great costumes and characters. Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm are all unforgettable imo. While Byrne was probably my favorite x-artist overall, i have most of Cockrum's issues (although many are reprints - the Classic X-men Series) The post-Phoenix saga team is pretty much my favorite x-roster.
  8. Feels like we are overdue for a new Fantasticar. Every time i post a pic with the old toybiz (comic) one, people are like "where's that from and where can i get one?".
  9. I mean, they did make figures for Amazing Spider-man, altho i don't think they were part of the ML line. IIRC last year's Sauron BAF used parts from the Amazing Spider-man Lizard figure. OTOH the point that we didn't get a "movie" venom figure is well-taken.. but i assume Hasbro felt that the venom wave covered it.. that monster venom in particular feels like a decent stand-in for the movie version. I can understand why hasbro hasn't made figures for the Fox movies due to having to share merchandising profits. In short, its kind of up in the air. I know both the homecoming 2-pack and the iron spidey pack (that i've never seen in the wild) both seemed to be pretty popular, but i'm not sure about how well the mcu spideys from the molten man wave sold since that wave barely seemed to show up in stores around here
  10. Eh, just pretend Jarvis had gastric bypass and grew a mustache. That's what i'm gonna do anyhow. My local WM put out a fresh case of Killer Croc so i grabbed an Alfred. My first DC multiverse purchase this year and likely my last ever unless i decide to build Croc. This is the 1st comic wave I've seen WM stock in quite awhile, although they did carry Shazam and the Aquaman wave (plus the harley/spoiler exclusives of course). Glad i was able to get at least one more good figure from the line before it disappears forever.
  11. Isn't Forge native-american too? no bow there. Nor with Shaman. So despite Mako's protests, I think Dani is actually the only native-american character whose figure comes with a bow. and i think she might be the only hasbro ML to come with an arrow, unless you count mcu Yondu.
  12. Unfortunately they are the biggest retailer around and probably sell more legends than anyone else so its unlikely they will stop getting exclusives. WIsh they would do a better job managing them, pretty much all of their exclusives this year have been fiascos. 80th Cap probably had the best roll out and there are still tons of people looking for him. The whole business with preorders being cancelled was ludicrous. and don't get me started about Binary.
  13. I assume eventually there will be a 3-pack with worthy Cap, final battle Thor, and final battle Iron Man. My guess would be sometime next year.
  14. any reason why? Seems like he would be an easy figure to make and is a pretty heavy hitting avengers villain. Plus hasbro could just repaint him and to make Graviton. I'm not sure if either has been in the comics lmuch ately, the last i recall for Nefaria was his appearance in Bendis' Moon Knight run.
  15. totally agree. I also think Raza would make a good figure and so would Hepzibah (who could theoretically share parts with a new Tigra figure) I hadn't realized this as my oldest translucent is probably the radioactive man from the 3-pack and i haven't had any problems with him yet. Not much i can do about age but i'll try and avoid exposing them to too much light. Now that i think about it i should probably take a bunch of pics of "the translucent gang" now while they are all in good shape (RM, singularity, human torch, living laser, astral strange, white vision...who am i forgetting?)
